Honda Europe introduced the HR-V Black Edition variant, which features minor yet distinctive design changes. This expands the brand's Black Edition treatment that was also applied to the locally sold City and Jazz last year.
Apart from the taunting Crystal Black Pearl paint, the Black Edition also gets black trims for the running boards, skid plates, Berlina Black front grille, mirror caps, and a set of 18-inch rims. Inside, this HR-V get special edition leathers (Magic seats) and carpets with black accents all throughout the cockpit.
You can argue that it has an intimidating look (with the all-black appearance and all). However, we can't say yet whether this would hit the local market or not. Yes, so far, this HR-V is a Euro-spec model only.
If you're one of those who fell for its black beauty, you might need to acquire additional patience and wait until Honda Philippines announces further information.
Locally, the HR-V compact crossover is available with a 1.8 i-VTEC engine that can put out 141 hp and 172 Nm of torque. The local-spec model is only available in CVT, with price starting at P1,243,000, ranging to P1,513,000.
